Should the US establish a Space Force?
Making this organizational change would only distract from the important near term space missions the US needs to complete
Exploration of space is arguably a higher priority than its militarisation.
Before the US can establish a "Space Force" they should figure out how to return to the Moon and how to get man into space.
"Seemingly petty issues like the Space Force uniforms . . .will be part of the process of standing up a new service and will add to the disruption, [Former Secretary of the Air Force Deborah James] said. . . 'these things take time and by nature will become a distraction."
It is possible to create this force and, at the same time, set priorities regarding space missions.
